About 

Master of Interior Architecture graduate with experience working on hospitality, multifamily, and high-end residential interior/interior architectural design projects. In this time, I have been involved in all phases of design project development (including construction and project closeout) and have assisted heavily with the creation of all project related construction documentation and on-site surveying and drafting of as-built drawings. I have been using Revit and AutoCAD to design, draft, and document interior/architectural design projects for over three years, being the primary drafter on all projects I have been assigned to. I am proficient at using 3ds Max and V-Ray for rendering both interior and exterior architectural scenes and environments and have experience using Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop for interior/architectural design presentation purposes.

I have also completed two years of Architectural Technology courses at Los Angeles Trade Technical College where I have learned the fundamentals of building construction materials and methods, interior detailing and building systems, and Revit MEP applications in addition to more general interior/architectural design concepts and documentation procedures.
